then snow late in the day but especially tomorrow night. there's a big storm moving east of the maritimes and then there is no breathing room between that and the next storm trying to come in. snow showers weakening north and east. more snow showers over southern new jersey that do continue to weaken but especially over ocean county could be persistent and still drop another coating to an inch overnight. you've got this one here and another one forming along the coast. what happens is the two link up during the day tomorrow, form a band of snow, and they're linked, and sort of lift that band up toward us during the day tomorrow. the position of that band will just determine how much snow we get across the area. let me show how i think it plays out. we've got steadier snow to the south. a few snow showers tomorrow morning. during the daylight hours, only a couple flurries. as we go through the late day, steadier snow starts to develop south and west and over spread the area during the evening hours. a new futurecast is showing steadier snows a little farther north in to northern new jersey, making a clean sweep
